Immortal Technique Mistakes Lyrics

sponsored links
fuck around and be in your late twenties...
feelin like a old man and shit...
yeah for real son... let em know

It's hard to breathe and hard to run when your lungs blacken
Coughin up blood like what the fuck happened
Raisin my risk of cancer's the answer homie
But after drinkin something there's nothin like puffin a bogie
Now I could blame the same product placement in movies,
Or the commercials, or Scarface in a jacuzzi
But now I'm livin it, damn,
I shoulda neva took that 1st cigarette

I fucked up like your girl was ridin on top of me
I should of took her to trial and never copped the plea
But this ain't a christian nation motha fucker please
America never told me to turn the other cheek
Cuz I'm from Harlem, the north of Manhattan
We knock niggas out and make em bounce like Ricky Hattan
But wildin on the corner, got me turned back from the Canadian border

I knew she was a virgin, when I first met her
Rockin stockings and poppin out of the catholic school sweater
Mom told her she could do better than a criminal
Seventeen year-old psychotic, trying to be lyrical
I never meant to break her heart or fuck up her life
But I was careless, instead of treating her right
I seen her again at some club strippin, and wondered
If I could have made her life different

Yeah..yeah... I joined the army looking for money to go to college
But they ain't pay me a quarter of what they fucking promised
Extended my tour, treating me like a sucka
That's the reason officers get fragged mothafucker
Don't give me speeches on how you respect and you love me
With no body armor in a lightly armored humvee?!
My family's lonely and you want me to re-enlist for 30 grand homie? No

When I was young I got signed to a record label
The deal looked so good when it was on the table
It paid for my cable, cribs, cars and jewelry
The studios, the women there's nothing they wouldn't do for me
Except stop screwing me for publishing the royalties
How the fuck are you my dawg, when there's no loyalty?
Word to the street
I should've gone independent like Immortal Technique

Some people learn from mistakes and don't repeat them
Others try to block the memories and just delete them
But I keep em as a reminder they not killing me
And not thank God for teaching me humility
Son, remember when you fight to be free
To see things how they are and not how you like em to be
Cause even when the world has fallen on top of me
Pessimism is an emotion, not a philosophy
Knowing what's wrong doesn't imply that you right
And its another, when you suffer to apply it in life
But I'm no rookie
And I'm never gonna make the same mistake twice pussy
